Testimonials

“USF has been partnered with Rave since 2006 and we’ve experienced excellent service, support and a partnership that’s greatly enhanced the USF environment. The system has proven to be extremely reliable. Each experience we have had with the system, it has performed flawlessly!”

~ Michael A. Pearce – System Vice President IT – University of South Florida

“The safety of our students, faculty and staff is vital to maintaining the strong reputation of our University. We conducted a rigorous industry-wide evaluation of all campus safety solutions and were immediately impressed with Rave Mobile Safety’s products and history of reliability. The ability to manage mass quantities of data of incoming and outgoing students and issue alerts quickly to thousands of students simultaneously, assures that campus safety is ready for any issue.”

~ Jeffrey Hescock – President’s Office Emergency Planning and Business Continuity Manager – University of Massachusetts

“A campus notification system must be reliable and have the ability to reach students and faculty through a variety of channels that they use in their daily lives. Prior to using Rave Alert we thought all emergency notification solutions were similar. This can’t be further from the truth. The performance, ease-of-use, and the level of support we receive are far beyond our previous solution. We are excited about the new enhancements in Rave Alert 5.0, and appreciate Rave’s commitment to excellence.”

~ Jason Friedberg – Chief of Police – Bucknell University

“We’re in an immediate information age. To many people today their phone is as important to them as their keys or their wallet. Yes, people do read e-mails, but to many, the text is more important. This will be used in any type of emergency that would require us to notify the public on an immediate basis.”

~ Robert Campbell – Sergeant, Special Projects – Texas State University Police Department

“We can’t be more pleased with the Rave Alert application. This is a significant upgrade from our previous provider in reliability, reporting, and features.  We also love the fact that we have so much control in management of the application. We now have the ability to reach our base by E-mail, SMS, Voice, and RSS feed.”

~ Tony Iaconetti – Executive Director of IT – Sussex County Community College
